Prime Time Nite
This is a must have. Great mood all night in a city like no other; Chicago.
The boys just had arranged for a new set of "Techno Beam" lights for use at a smokey nightclub called Martyrs. It's in the partiville part of the party city.
Wild motions of light, new to the band that night had arrived as a trial run from a local Lighting Company. The future arrived in a sense right then. Before the show, we were seeing test drills and color sequences. Awesome. Behind the wheel sat Matt Beeno Ira out of Wetlands, NYC. Good guy.
Like many Biscuit shows there's a musical theme all night. This nite? The heavy grindin stuff. Oh and "chasing through the streets tough" bisco. They had this "anthem bisco" sound at the time and a Barber swing to some of they're jams. See the Pygmy>"BERT" Little Lai. Listen at the 12th minute to the end of the show. Some of the most amzing music on the face of the planet. This sequence is loaded up, packed for a great ride
Old names as in OG fans showed up to the show, too. Not for lighting tho. The Real dancers showed. Movers. Sickness all over the small room of 200 or so. everybody bumped!
Get it for your collection.
Note: The whole show kicks your ass. 99 style. The second set is as money as money gets. . Second Note: Clean ass sober that nite. 22 years old at the time.

funny thing about the Plan/Fiddlers
The guy yelling in the mics is telling someone that Barber just told him that there's no guitar in his monitor. He did that segue without hearing the guitar apparently! thats fairly ridiculous
Good show-- not my favorite, but definitely fun.

it's all about the plan B>fiddler>plan B
one of the first shows i owned. it didn't have track titles, and i originally thought fiddler was just a segment of plan b. that's how seamlessly they mesh this together. it's perfection. except for the guy yelling into the mics right before fiddler. other than that, it really is a great show. one of my top five.

This was one of the first shows i had ever heard, and continued to be one of my favorites for a long time, mostly because of the Waves i think. I remember the show having a very "experimental" feel to it (I suppose its because they experiment quite often ;). BEST WAVES EVER>
